We are so very grateful for our allies in the fight to prevent, treat, and recover from substance use disorder. We recently found a formidable ally in Novant Health. They decided that their over 25,000 team members and physician partners would benefit from 6 hours of opioid-specific online continuing medical education. The content is filled with highly relevant information facilitated by content area experts. This initiative will empower their professionals to better serve patients and families impacted by opioid misuse and addiction.
Recognizing the role stigma plays in the addiction epidemic, Novant reached out to us to share a message of hope to be included in the training. They further went on to form a stigma reduction committee to address potential obstacles to wellness in any of their 15 hospitals and over 400 clinics throughout the southeast. They invited us to take a seat at the table, and they plan to include the core of our stigma reduction work in their staff training. Novant Health is part of the solution.
We are honored to recognize Novant Health with a special award at our Spring Conference in Asheville. They inspire us with their bold and innovative initiatives to preserve life and promote health & wellness as they give voice to people impacted by addiction. Nicely done.
